    I want to update ElegantThemes 'Chameleon' (that I haven't edited or modified), from v.2.1 to v.2.2.

    How do I delete the old version?

    you might want to ask the seller of your commercial theme for support.

    As @alchymyth indicated, any Theme-specific questions should be directed to ElegantThemes. That said, in general, to delete a Theme:

    1. Login to your hosting account using the FTP client of your choice, or use your hosting account control panel's file manager.
    2. Find {wordpress install root directory}/wp-content/themes/{theme-name}
    3. Delete the {theme-name} directory, and everything it contains

    Note: you may want to make a backup of these files before deleting.

    Thanks alchymyth. I already got 2 unhelpful replies from ElegantThemes support.

    And thanks Chip, I finally deleted it (and copied your instructions for future reference.)
